@grapeskittles4lyfe oh no! So sorry about the injury @Starfish113 that room is adorable!So, in the great world of unsolicited pregnancy advice, I've been getting a lot of push against trying for a totally natural birth. My mom (who, to be fair, is an anesthetist and therefore literally pushes drugs for a living) will not shut up about how she thinks I "should really" talk to my doctor about getting an epidural. Plenty of random other people have given me similar "advice." I hear a lot of, "I don't know why anybody wouldn't get an epidural."Anyone else getting this kind of commentary? I'm at a loss for how to respond to it.
Just call them a bunch of wusses for not being able to handle the pain ;-p
No, I don't actually think that but the unsolicited advice grates on me after a while and in my head I get mean :-) In reality I just smile and nod and do what I want. I haven't been given any unsolicited advice on that but I got plenty on a number of other things last time and I'm sure I'll get a bunch this time around. And it doesn't end after birth. Prepare yourself for plenty of input on how to take care of your kid. My approach depends on the person and my relationship to them. I either smile, nod, thank them for their advice and then do what I want or I explain to them my stance and if they still push their agenda after I explain my stance, then I smile and nod and do what I want :-) It does get annoying, but it's good practice for your patience :-)
@grapeskittles4lyfe That does not sound very fun I hope you heal quickly!
@Starfish113 That room is so awesome and cute!!!
@NiceyMeany I haven't told many people that I want to go med free because of that right there! It came up in conversation with my boss and a friend who had her second a month ago. My boss basically said I probably wouldn't make it because his wife is small like me and she didn't make it to the hospital in time with the first and wanted meds with the rest because she didn't like it. (he didn't use those exact words of course) I talked to my friend because she had GD with both and was induced with #1 but #2 came on his own. I want to go med free but with GD I'm worried about having to be induced.
Love my LEO!!

@FreshBakedBrownies and @Patience7150 my mom keeps trying to talk me out of cloth diapering also. Its so obnoxious. I'm not planning on telling anyone that I want to try to go med-free either because everyone has an opinion and I just don't want to hear it.
